Millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Susan Ertz. (via). Cf. Seneca:

You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire.

Of course you can substitute for the word “travel” any number of things you enjoy:

Last week the question arose as to what we would do differently if we were immortal… I answered that I would travel more.

Later the question was asked, what would you do differently if you found out you had only a short time to live. I answered again that I would travel more. Click, buzz, whirr…does not compute, does not compute… Given that I would travel more if I was to live either less or more the probability that I was at just that level of mortality that I should not be traveling now must be vanishingly small.
